Thread: What’s the best DevOps tools to implement from the start? What was your first choice? What would you go back and change?

It depends where you are and what you’re trying to accomplish. Tools are solutions. Start with the outcome and work backwards
There’s no “Best” if you’re a 0-1 company starting with monitoring makes no sense for example

👆 but other than that my go to are gitlab, terraform and ansible ( this is my preferred stack, not what I think are best, it all depends on the company and situation )

I would start with a vision, a set of principles, and a written description of what you’d like to accomplish. Then take that and work backwards based on the principles. For example if you hvae a principle of least surprise selecting something like GitLab might not make sense 😉
